Morning Monkey Pancakes for Breakfast!

Monkey Pancakes with a Banana for Breakfast
We made this monkey breakfast using regular & chocolate pancakes, chocolate chips, and 1 banana.

Make your favorite pancake mix. Separate half of it and mix in a little cocoa. We added half a tablespoon to 1 cup of pancake mix. Make the big face with the chocolate mix. Make smaller circles for the ears and nose with the regular pancake mix. You can always cut it with kitchen scissors if it’s not perfect. After you place your monkey on the plate…add the chocolate chips for the eyes, nose and mouth. We used mini chocolate chips for the nose and mouth. We used regular chocolate chips for the eyes. Add your banana.

This is so easy and fun! Give the kids the chocolate chips and let them decorate the face! That’s if they can keep from eating it first!
